Good for you, good for baby

Mizan pregnancy massage

Many of the problems that we take for granted and accept as a normal part of being pregnant can be prevented. You don’t need to put up with spd/pgp, tired aching legs, varicose veins or swollen ankles, nor do you have to cope with sickness, headaches, or fluid retention. Mizan pregnancy massage can help to relieve these and many other discomforts.

Treating yourself to regular treatments during pregnancy is relaxing and enjoyable for both you and the baby.

Because it promotes circulation, the abdominal muscles are relaxed and strengthened, ready to birth your baby. It’s a great way to encourage your baby into the optimum position ready for birth, leading to a shorter labour and easier birth for you both.

Post natal healing

Having Mizan post-birth is extremely beneficial in assisting the pelvic organs gently back to their optimum position and function. Depending on how the birth went, Mizan can usually be safely done a couple of weeks following the birth. If your baby was born by caesarean section, then it’s best to wait until after the 6-week check, although there are healing practices that can be started before then. If you are a client during pregnancy, I can teach you a lovely routine to do yourself that you can start almost immediately following the birth.

If the birth was by caesarean section, Mizan will not only guide the uterus back into position, but will also help in breaking down scar tissue and preventing the uterus adhering to other internal organs. This can make all the difference to your next pregnancy and birth experience.
